In the festival of lights, there are enough lights for you to capture and create eye-catching shots.

But you may face certain difficulties to capture this festival’s real beauty, especially when the sun goes down. This happens when you don’t have proper knowledge of your camera and don’t know how to work in such lightings.

In this blog, we’ll help you get an overview of top Diwali photography ideas so your images don’t turn out blurry.


1. Make the Most of the Illumination


As the sun settles in, you will find everyone celebrating the festival with full force. But this is the time when you’ll need to pay attention. Most of the Diwali activities will have different sources of lights, be it lanterns, diya’s or even firecrackers. In order to capture these different forms of lights, you’ll need to place your subject near the source of light. Whatever kind of illumination you find around you, check if there aren’t any deep shadows.


2. Try getting close towards your Subject


Photographing Diwali subjects from a distance could ruin the quality of your picture. It’s always best to get as close as you can to achieve the best Diwali shot. Especially when there’s not enough lighting, you will have to take an effort and get closer to your subjects. Digital zooming won’t work the way it will work when you’re closer to your subject. Stay as close as you can, you’ll surely be amazed by the results.


3. Keep yourself and your Camera Sturdy


Firecracker pics are very tricky to capture and you need to be very spontaneous with your every shot. You need to invest in a sturdy tripod that goes because hand-held would end up giving you blurry images. If you’re unable to afford the tripod at this moment, you can try using the self-timer option. Moreover, always remember to click the release button every now and then so your chance of getting numerous sharp pictures increases.


4. Frame Your Shot Well in Advance


Shooting nighttime differs from shooting in the daylight because there’s no to minimal source of light. Your camera is unlikely to find a focus during the night so you need to do it yourself manually. Look around you, what do you want to capture, what’s appearing more recurringly around you? Accordingly set your camera in advance. Frame the shot using live-view and keep the focus manual in order to shoot crisp pictures.
